Name, Image and Likeness (NIL) has recently come into play, but the WLJ Sports Law team and our intellectual property attorneys have been well-versed in publicity law and NIL matters for a number of years, including the successful drafting and enactment of Arkansas’ original publicity law for all residents, the Frank Broyles Publicity Rights Act.

With a team of past collegiate athletes and athletic attorneys, the NIL group is committed to helping professionals, student-athletes and businesses achieve success on and off the field by staying current with the NCAA regulations and the various school rules to make sure our student-athletes maintain eligibility while pursuing their business goals. In addition, our team of professionals routinely works with both influencers and businesses to counsel on licensing, proper social media usage, compliance with the Federal Trade Commission guidance on social media advertising and false advertising issues.
